About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Vivienne, living in the UK and married with a son who now lives in Perth, Australia and a daughter who has given me two gorgeous grandsons! Paint Shop has been my hobby for more years than I can remember and I love making tags. I have always loved doing tutorials written by others and a couple of years ago started writing them myself. As well as tag tutorials, I also have a Tips and Tricks page where you will find tutorials on basic Paint Shop techniques. I hope you enjoy my blog and have fun with my tutorials. Please be sure also to check out the Tag Gallery and see some of the awesome results to the tutorials!

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 80, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 buy 600 pixels and fill with white.

Open and copy pp10, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Open el17, paste as a new layer and resize 60%.  Select the interior with you magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below the element.  Open and copy pp6 and paste it into the selection, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.  Close off the white background layer and mask layer and merge visible, re-open the closed layers. 

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 70%.

Open el19 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, drag below the merged layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow,

Open el24 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, flip and and position on the left.  Duplicate, mirror and move over to the right.   Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open el1 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55% and position on the left in between the two copies of el24.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate, drag it up between the merged layer and tube and position on the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open el23 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el27, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 70%, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el2 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, drag below both copies of el27, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el20 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 33% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el25, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Resize 45% and duplicate, mirror the original element and resize the copy 85%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open el26 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 50%, drag below both copies of el25, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el11 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el8 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments, when you are done crop your tag and add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
